The Middle East divides into two camps. New money and old.

Kuwait recalls ambassador to Iran over Saudi mission attack

Kuwait has become the next Islamic country to renounce ties with Iran after it recalled its ambassador to Tehran, following Iran’s spat with Saudi Arabia.

The state-run Kuwait News Agency reported the news. A source at the Foreign Ministry blasted Iran for its alleged violations of the commitment to provide security to diplomatic missions – an accusation Iran has always refuted.

Kuwait’s move is the latest in a series of decisions taken by those siding with Saudi Arabia in its spat with Iran – a situation that started in earnest after the execution by Riyadh of a prominent Shia cleric, along with 46 other people. This was followed by Iran’s condemnation, and later by angry Iranian protesters storming the Saudi Embassy in Tehran, leading to an international outcry over Iran’s alleged unwillingness to ensure the safety of diplomatic missions on its soil.

The decision also follows Bahrain and Sudan’s decisions to sever all diplomatic ties with Iran, and the United Arab Emirates to limit the number of Iranian diplomats allowed within its borders.

Sudan has now given Iranian diplomats two weeks to leave the country, AP reports. This comes a day after Khartoum informed Riyadh of its solidarity with Saudi Arabia on the Iranian matter and announced the expulsion of Iran’s ambassador.

TAP – Where is all this heading?  Washington must surely be behind the decision of the Saudis to bring the Middle East to boiling point, although commentators say The House Of Saud feels insecure inside SA, and needs an international crisis to shore up their position internally within SA.  With Russia frustrating the Saudi attempt to overpower Syria, and Yemenis fighting back successfully and invading the south of Saudi Arabia, the pendulum has swung back the other way, sending the Middle East into political crisis.  Saudi like Turkey thinks that NATO will ultimately overpower Putin, and they’ve played all their cards.  But will it? Putin is strengthening his positions in Syria and Crimea.  It is the aggressors – Ukraine, Saudi Arabia and Turkey that are coming unstuck, and NATO is not showing enough strength to reverse this.  Iran is also readying to push Turkey out, and Syria is building up forces at Golan.bbChina is sending ground troops to Syria, showing a willingness to weigh in behind Putin.

Is it possible that Putin will be able to build his position enough, in alliance with Iran, to take control, put Saudi, Turkey and the other regional aggressors back in their box, with NATO, apparently the strongest military force in the world, sidelined?  It wouldn’t be the first time that the possessors of all the money and apparent wealth are militarily humiliated by those who believe in their cause.  Very few people in the West support their own governments’ attempts to destroy Middle eastern country after country.

Is the world readying to reverse the rule of the NAZIs, who never lost WW2 but merely relocated to America, and took control of Europe via the EU?  They and their Saudi agents are the new money.  Russia and Iran are the old.
